Echinacea SOMBRERO® SANGRITA ('Balsomanita' PP30138 US7,982,110) (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Coneflower
All colors of the SOMBRERO® series are evenly matched for habit and timing, making them a breeze in production. They are all very well-branched, sturdy plants that bulk up quickly, do not require vernalization to bloom, and are loaded with buds for a vibrant show of color.
SOMBRERO® Sangrita has orange flowers that mature to rich warm red with dark cones. Its foliage is a rich dark green, darker than SALSA RED.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. Though they will tolerate light shade, fewer flowers will be produced, and the plants will be weakened. Light, loamy soils are best, but coneflowers will grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years.
